The bigger your why, the higher you’ll climb

Folks: Stop being so harsh on yourself.

I was on a coaching call tonight ó and it was all about gratitude. It reminded me simply to be grateful for where I am today ó right here, right now.

With two screws in my shoulder, Iím grateful that I can still lift weights. With nerve damage after back surgery, Iím grateful that I can still walk and run. With stretch marks, Iím grateful for my amazing boys. In looking back at previous photos and past workout journals, Iím grateful for just how far Iíve come.

Itís easy to pick ourselves apart and develop a list of what we could still change. But, isnít it also super important to be grateful and realize our own journey and know that every past surgery, mindset struggle and (negative-dweeb) in our life have brought us to where we are today?

Itís Wednesday ó and, most of us have goals weíre trying to achieve this week. I would encourage you to take a moment and reflect on everything that youíve already accomplished ó and, stop being so harsh on yourself. That isnít productive at all.

Instead focus on your vision ó on your goals ó of what you want to have happen. I believe you have to see it in your vision before you see it in your life.

Hereís the dealio ó when I sat behind a desk all day in the corporate world, I dreamed of a day when my real purpose and passion would collide and I could create the perfect storm. The perfect chance to do what I love and bring about positive change in the lives of others.

It takes time. It takes dedication. It takes perseverance. It takes getting smacked upside the head with a ton of closed doors in your face.

The bigger your ďwhy,Ē the higher youíll climb ó†and, the larger the impact will be.
